God's Own Heart

My prayer these past few months have been me asking God to make me a woman after God's own heart. To make me like David. To make me like Phineas. Why are these 2 characters so important to me? Because they stood up for the integrity of the King. When David saw Goliath blaspheming, he took charge and killed that giant. When Phineas saw immorality creeping into the camp of Israel he was zealous for YHVH and killed those who were blatantly sinning. This zealousness for God is lost in the Christian Church. When they see someone blatantly blaspheming and rebelling against God, their reaction is love and prayer. To just sit back and not take action.
I don't want to be like that. I don't want to be a part of that. When I see someone cursing the land of Israel, mocking God ... I won't sit in my room praying for them. I will take action and stand as a witness before them. I will warn them of the curses God says will come upon them if they don't repent. In the Torah and in the New Testament God and Paul speak very clearly of how to treat people like this (scripture references below). We must not pity them, we must not even share a meal with them.
Now i'm not talking about those who don't know about the Torah. I'm talking about those who have eaten the covenant meal (the Passover lamb), declared to the world that they follow the God of Israel and then shrink back when hard times come.
The Torah isn't just how an individual is supposed to live. It's a constitution, a legal binding document that God gave to Israel. So when we see a fellow Israelite blaspheming ... we mustn't stand back and be milksops ... we must stand up for the name of God.

I'm sure everyone who wants to pursue God and learn more about Him want to be like David. No one else in the Bible is called a man after God's own heart. Imagine that? Standing before the King of Kings and Him telling you that you are a man/woman after His own heart?

Most of us want to be a David, but how? First we must know what God's heart is. What He wants us to do. How He wants us to worship Him. A lot of Christians will celebrate Easter and Christmas and not even know that they're worshipping another god. That's blasphemy. It's amazing the amount of doctrine the Christians are taught and they just sit in the pew and breathe it all in and not go back and study for themselves (I was like that). Some Christians even know that Christmas is wrong ... but their excuse? They say that they do it for 'Jesus'.


Excuse me ..... But now you're acting like Cain. God didn't want fruit and vegetables, He wanted a lamb. But Cain wanted to worship God the way he wanted to do it. Not the way God wants to be worshipped.

We must study and search for how God wants us to worship Him and not do it the way we see fit.

So back to knowing what God's heart is ... it's very simple. But you don't see in the English translations of our Bible. Only in the Hebrew.

The first book in the Torah is Genesis, in the Hebrew, Berisheet. The first word of Berisheet is ... berisheet (=D), the first letter it a Bet.
The last book in the Torah is Deuteronomy, in the Hebrew, Devarim. The last word in Devarim is Israel. The last letter is a Lamed.
Hebrew you read from right to left so the lamed and bet together make the word Lev. Which means heart.


You want to be a woman after God's own heart? Follow Torah. David did! Search for the truth.

Deuteronomy 13:8; 19:21; 25:16; 7:9-10; 8:19-20 - Leviticus 20:23; 24:14-16; 26:14-17; 26:18 - Hebrews 10:26-31; 3:12; 10:38; James 4:4; 2 Peter 2:20-22

Quote #1

I love this. We must all keep striving to become His bride.

To never stop trying.
To never stop humbling ourselves in prayer.
To never stop fully surrendering our dreams to Him.
To never stop fighting for the Truth.
To never stop donning our helmets and the Word of God to go out and conquer, all in His Name!

To never stop following His HEART! His TORAH!!

Even when the waves look high and too strong. Always look in front of you, because His standing right there with open arms.

Isn't YHVH so beautiful and amazing?
